MARIAH CAREY SUPPORT ARTIST30th September, 2014
Nathaniel announced as support artist
Promoters are thrilled to announce that Nathaniel will be the support act on the Australian leg of Mariah Carey’s “The Elusive Chanteuse Show” world tour.
With his signature falsetto and incredibly soulful voice, multi-platinum selling artist Nathaniel is set to have fans at each show on their feet before Mariah takes to the stage. A finalist in the 2012 season of The X-Factor, Nathaniel has already made an impact on the Australian music industry with three hit singles, ‘You’, ‘You’re Beautiful’ and his new smash ‘Live Louder’.
Nathaniel is also the first signing to top Australian song writing and production team, DNA’s label, distributed via Sony Music. As a humble singer-songwriter from Melbourne, being chosen as support act for the one and only Mariah Carey is something Nathaniel is extremely proud of.
“Being the support act for the beautiful Mariah Carey is definitely a career highlight to date. She has been an idol of mine for as long as I can remember. Even as a male singer, her voice makes me want to be the best vocalist I can be. Mariah is an absolute superstar, an international icon and one of the best singers in the world. It is a dream come true and absolute honour to be Mariah’s opening act for the Australian tour."
Mariah Carey with special guest Nathaniel will play six exclusive dates in Australia (Live Nation), including two very special a day on the green events at Rochford Wines, Yarra Valley on Saturday November 8 and Sirromet Wines, Mt Cotton on Sunday November 16.
This will be Mariah’s first national Australian tour since her “Butterfly” world tour visited here in 1998, with the exception of 3 East Coast shows presented in January 2013. Carey’s set list will be an exciting mix of her biggest hits, fan-favourite album cuts, never-before-performed selections from her #1 R&B Album “Me. I am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse” and many more surprises!
“I want to experience the spontaneity and emotion that I put into this album on stage with my fans,” says Carey. “I can’t stop writing songs so don’t be surprised if you hear a brand new song that I just wrote the night before the show in your city!”
Mariah Carey is a true music icon and the best-selling female artist of all time, with more than 220 million albums sold to date and 18 Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 singles (17 self-penned), including 'Fantasy', 'Always Be My Baby', 'Hero', 'Touch My Body', 'One Sweet Day', and 'We Belong Together' - more than any solo artist in history.
With her distinct five-octave vocal range, prolific songwriting, and producing talent, Mariah has redefined the modern pop performance. As a singer/songwriter/producer, she has been recognised with multiple Grammy Awards, 21 American Music Awards, Billboard's “Artist of the Decade” Award, the World Music Award for “World's Best Selling Female Artist of the Millennium,” and BMI's “Icon Award” for her outstanding achievements in songwriting, to name a few.
Mariah Carey's ongoing impact transcends the music industry to leave an indelible imprint upon the world at large. She has made substantial marks in film with critically acclaimed roles in Precious (2009) and also in Lee Daniel’s The Butler (2013). A Congressional Award recipient, Mariah has generously donated her time and energy to a range of philanthropic causes near to her heart including Save the Music, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, World Hunger Relief, and the Elton John AIDS Foundation, among many others. A tremendous supporter of children’s charities, both domestic and international, Mariah founded Camp Mariah in partnership with the Fresh Air Fund, a retreat for inner city children to explore career development.
